 Hello  Folks,
 
 Its  been  a  week  since  the  set  up  is  on.   The  tank  currently  is  stocked  with
 
 Chinese  Paradise  -  2  fishes
 Neon  Tetras  -  6  fishes
 Flying  Foxes  -  7  fishes
 Chinese  Algae  Eaters  -  2  fishes
 Beta  -  1  fish
 Mollies  -  6  fishes
 Cuppies  -  4  fishes
 Marble  corys  -  2  fishes
 
 So  far  no  algae  issues.  The  plants  seem  to  be  growing  well,  lot  of  new  shoots  (I  guess  its  the  New  Tank  Syndrome)  
 
 Experts  please  advise  if  there  is  anything  else  that  needs  to  be  done.  
 
 I  have  increased  the  lighting  to  14  hours  ,  is  this  ok.

 Hi  Prem
 
    The  light  period  is  too  much  in  my  opinion  reduce  it  back  to  12  hrs,  at  half  an  hour  periods  daily.  The  photoperiod  for  most  plants  is  arround  12hrs  anything  more  is  not  being  utilised  by  the  plants.  This  will  create  algae  issues  in  the  tank.  
    Concentrate  now  on  the  dosing  and  CO2  levels  in  your  tank.  This  will  give  better  results  than  increasing  photo  period.
 
 Regards
   Harshal

 So,  this  is  your  planted  tank!   Clapping  Keep  it  up.
 
 Schooling  fish  look  better  than  mixed  species,  IMO.

 Hi  Shubhi,
 
 The  hood  was  custom  made(DIY)  by  Harshal  -  Aquamechanics.
 
 I  am  sure  you  can  have  one  made  like  this  for  your  6  footer  as  well.
 
 Cheers  and  good  luck.

 Folks,
 
 I  fixed  the  cylinder  on  Sunday  and  I  happened  to  work  from  home  today  and  I  coudnt  belive  my  eyes.  My  tank  looked  like  a  beer  mug  (venkat's  description  of  pearling).
 
 Thanks  Venkat  you  were  right.
 
 I  shall  post  pictures  of  my  tank  tomorrow  and  its  already  ready  to  be  pruned.

 Was  out  of  town  for  about  10  days  and  didn't  get  to  see  this.  
 
 Nice  tank,  Prem.  Take  Deepak's  suggestion  on  the  lighting  and  also  try  to  shoot  late  in  the  evening  or  early  in  the  morning  when  it  is  dark.  Brings  out  the  colours  well.
 
 All  the  best,  looking  forward  to  more  updates.
